Toyi Toyi!

Lyrics:  

When you’re hearing that big brass sound then get up

Feel the beat. get your feet off the ground and get up

Lift your ass punch your fist in the sky and get up

Let the music be your answer why and get up

When your government gets you down

When you’re sick of all those racist clowns

Just when you think you’re gonna drown

The best thing you can do when you want to lose your frown

Is to…

TOYI TOYI raise your fist in the air

TOYI TOYI for a world that is fair

TOYI TOYI raise your fist to the sky

TOYI TOYI it’s the best kind of high

When you’re hearing that big brass sound then get up

Feel the beat. get your feet off the ground and get up

Lift your ass punch your fist in the sky and get up

Let the music be your answer why and get up

You think your role models are rotten to the core

One law for the rich and another for the poor

They want to send you off to fight another war

You get so filled with rage that you cant take it anymore

You got to….

TOYI TOYI break this apathy

TOYI TOYI for solidarity

TOYI TOYI it makes you feel free

TOYI TOYI it’s the best psychology

TOYI TOYI let everybody see ya

TOYI TOYI it’s better than a beer

TOYI TOYI it helps you lose you fear

TOYI TOYI make it loud and clear

TOYI TOYI makes you feel that you belong

TOYI TOYI when the world is going wrong

TOYI TOYI makes you feel strong

TOYI TOYI singing revolutionary songs

When you’re hearing that big brass sound then get up

Feel the beat. get your feet off the ground and get up

Lift your ass punch your fist in the sky and get up

Let the music be your answer why and get up

When global warming starts to impact

When the whole damn system is so full of cracks

The media are twisting all the facts

And all these selfish governments just refuse to act.

You got to…

TOYI TOYI raise your fists in the air

TOYI TOYI for a world that is fair

TOYI TOYI raise your fist to the sky

TOYI TOYI it’s the best kind of high

TOYI TOYI makes you feel that you belong

TOYI TOYI when the world is going wrong

TOYI TOYI it makes you feel strong

TOYI TOYI singing revolution songs
